    A truly fresh take on the romantic comedy: It's as sad as it is funny, and the boy-girl match so misbegotten you can't help but pray it won't work out in the end. Call it an anti-rom-com, and see it if you can.

    • 88 Ken Fox
    While Gyllenhaal is a competent actor, Ledger - surprisingly enough - is becoming a great one, and the levels of intensity they bring to their roles render this romantically star-crossed relationship emotionally lopsided.

    • 88 Ken Fox
    The casual listener is easily put off, but by the end of the film, even a newcomer can see the magic that made fans of Kurt Cobain and Sonic Youth and led the estimable Yo La Tengo, Pearl Jam and Wilco to cover Johnston's remarkable body of work.

    Baer asks all the right questions.

    Sweet, melancholy comedy; it's ineffable charm lies entirely in the delivery.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Eisenstadt has an unerring sense of comedic rhythm and a knack of cutting away just in time to extract the drop of humor from a potentially pathetic situation.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Newcomer Cassidy is excellent, and Hoskins gives a flawless performance.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Polanski's film is an unqualified success both dramatically and artistically.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
    Not many films have the power to change how one sees other people, but this remarkable anthology of loosely connected shorts from writer-director David Riker just might.

    Gowariker's stunningly choreographed, four-hour spectacle (reportedly one of the most expensive films in the industry's history) is a fascinating mix of Hollywood genres and tropes.

    Extraordinary documentary.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Ken Fox
